To achieve compliance, we based our Policy on the following principles:

What Information will we collect and why? How will we use it?

We process personal data for purposes of our legitimate interests, granted that those interests do not override any of our users’ interests, rights, and freedoms. This legitimate interest includes processing for marketing, research, and business development purposes.

We also process personal data for other purposes with consent, but you have the right to withdraw consent to the processing for specific purposes, as outlined below.

Systematix collects both personal data (such as name and contact details) and sensitive personal data (such as your CV) via several sources such as third-party websites (i.e., Monster, Indeed, Workopolis, etc.)  and job/professional social media mechanisms (i.e., LinkedIn). The personal data and sensitive personal data will be stored, processed, used, and disclosed as follows:

  • assess opportunities,
  • send information to clients to apply or assess your eligibility for jobs (with specific permission),
  • enable CV submission, online job application, and/or subscribe to alerts about jobs,
  • allow participation in specialist online training services,
  • allow participation in interactive features of our service,
  • market recruitment services (permanent, temporary, contract, outplacement, and recruitment process outsourcing services),
  • enable the development and marketing of products and services with your consent,
  • improve services and customer services including our website and affiliated company websites,
  • send you reports, promotions, offers, networking/client events, and general information about the industry sectors which might be of interest and with your consent,

  • use your information on an anonymized basis to monitor compliance with our equal opportunities policy, and
  • carry out our contractual obligations between you and Systematix, including timesheets, invoicing, and payments.

We reserve the right to transfer your data to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of our company provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy and provided that the third party only uses your data for the purposes that you provided it to us. You will be notified in the event of any such transfer, and you will be allowed to opt out.


Where will my information be held?  How is it accessible?

The personal data that you provide to us (including sensitive personal data) may be accessible by other Systematix group companies, clients, and the third parties specified above. Some of these Systematix companies, clients and third parties may be located outside of Canada. Accordingly, your data may be sent to or be capable of being accessed from outside Canada. When we transfer your data outside Canada, we will take steps to ensure your privacy rights are protected as outlined in this Privacy Policy. However, your data may be subject to government access by lawful authorities in the foreign jurisdiction(s).

EU privacy data will be maintained within the EU whenever possible and, if necessary to move outside of the EU, it will be afforded the equivalent protection. Some business processes require us to move necessary data to Canada. We endeavour to ensure cloud-based applications in use retain the data in the EU or we will take all available configuration steps to avoid an uncompliant transfer of data.


How Is Your Data Safeguarded?

We implement commercially reasonable industry standards, policies, procedures, technologies, and best practices to ensure that your data is protected against unauthorized access, inappropriate disclosure, alteration, or misuse. All safety and security measures which are implemented are designed to be appropriate to the sensitivity level of the stored personal data, including:

  • premises security,
  • restricted access to personal data on a need-to-know basis,
  • deploying and improving technological safeguards to prevent unauthorized access,
  • encrypted transmission and storage of data whenever feasible,
